Laketran To Take Part In National Bike To Work Day

Ryan Adkins routinely rides his bike to a bus stop and continues to Lakeland Community College with the convenience of using Laketran’s on-board bike racks.

On Friday, May 19, Laketran (Lake County, OH) will participate in National Bike to Work Day. To encourage healthy and environmentally friendly commuting options, passengers on Local Routes 1-9 and Park-n-Ride Routes 10-12 who ride their bikes to the bus stop will ride Laketran for free.

“Laketran is participating in the national effort to promote alternative transportation options other than driving a car,” Laketran CEO Ben Capelle said. “There are many benefits to biking and riding public transit. There are the obvious health benefits, but biking and riding also has an impact on local air quality and improves access throughout our region with multi-modal transportation options.”

Laketran’s Rack-n-Roll program carries over 2,500 bicycles a year. The agency’s new electric transit buses, that operate Local Routes 1-9, each hold three bikes on their on-board bike racks. Meanwhile, Laketran Park-n-Ride Routes 10-12 coach buses are each equipped with two on-board bike racks for riders to secure their bikes before boarding.

Laketran’s transit center at Lakeland Community College and all of its park-n-ride lots also have bike racks for riders to lock their bikes if they prefer not to take them on-board.
